Choirs and Dance Schools are also encouraged to get in touch should they be interested in being featured in the show.

How to apply?

Make a short video or audio clip of your performance (cellphone is acceptable) and send it to [email protected] for consideration.

The Born To Perform team will then be in touch to arrange a convenient audition time for you, should you “make the cut” and earn and audition.

Successful applicants will be given a full professional theatre experience and may get the opportunity to collaborate with a local celebrity. Born To Perform then present their talent to directors/producers and agents in the industry at the Gala Event in December and beyond.

Following the 2015 show, a Christmas Special show was produced for M-Net and had offers for the talent to perform in various events. These included St Johns College’s “On The Night”, Holiday Inn Express Corporate, Gold Reef City Theme Park, Montecasino Bird Gardens, Yo-TV, Blue Couch on SABC to name only a few.

Various performers were offered management and talent agent deals.
